Where should Geno Smith be picked? Dan Leberfeld
West Virginia’s Geno Smith is one of the big enigmas of this draft.
It’s hard to figure out where the quarterback should be picked.
He has a lot of talent, but was very inconsistent in college.
“I saw everything that I saw on tape about Geno, and that is he flashed everything you want to see in a franchise quarterback on tape during the season,” said Mike Mayock (NFL Network). “He has a big arm, good arm, he moves well, he can be accurate. Everything I saw on tape I saw [at the combine]. He’s a natural thrower; he doesn’t force the ball. I’m happy he [threw at the combine] because it just shows me he’s not afraid; Cam Newton did it and he didn’t throw the ball well and he still was the first pick in the draft. To me, it’s more important what you see on tape.
“I want to bang the table because I want to like Geno Smith. We interviewed him, I love what he had to say, but there are just too many inconsistencies on tape for me to say that Kansas City or anybody that high should take him. He‟s more of a 20-32 [overall pick player].
“I’ve said that based on watching six of his games. I’m going to watch the rest of them, but there are just so many inconsistencies with both Geno Smith and the entire quarterback class that I trouble banging the table for any of them.”
